If you frequent my blog, you've no doubt gathered I'm a fan of LA's Brainfeeder crew. Flying Lotus, Samiyam, GLK, Ras G, et al are making some of the finest left-field hip-hop around right now.
Alex, like his colleagues, excels in the kind of lopsided ADHD hip hop, that journalists are trying to classify as "Wonky."
It's a kitchen sink approach to beat making where the traditional influences of funk and jazz mingle with dreamy atmospheric pads, electro bass-lines, g-funk synthesizers, and video-game melodies to form a sound equally suited for the club or your headphones.
This podcast is a showcase for exclusive productions from himself and some friends.
Go on, nourish your intellect.

Here I basically just write about whatever I'm into at the moment. Mostly it's music, but also some books and a good political rant every now and then, circumstances warranting. I'll post links to audio I think is worth downloading, but basically, it's just self-indulgence in the typical fashion of web 2.0 user generated content. This is blogging after all, a bare minimum amount of narcissism is implied, is it not?
If you've taken the time to read all of this you may as well check out some of my posts. And if you've gotten something from this blog or you think my writing sucks, I'm full of shit, etc.- why not reply or contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org? I would sincerely love to hear from you, whoever you are...
